I really like Halloween and though I don't go as overboard as some in my neighborhood I do like to get some decorations out!
This year I went the easy route and just used several pumpkins and lots of mums. For the entryway I put out a small display of fun Halloween things - including my witches hat stitched up a few years ago using a Crabapple Hill design.
So no surprise that this week I ordered the new Salem Quilt Guild Mystery row from Crabapple Design!
This design combines embroidery and crayon work on fabric. It has been a long time since I tried that. Anyway, it should be a great take-along/travel project!
I also succumbed to another book. My friend Shannon sat at the same table as me at retreat and she was working on this quilt, Farm Girl Vintage, by Lori Holt. It is so stinkin' cute! My rational? I have so much 30's fabric in my stash and I really should just use it...(how does that one work?!)
On the "current quilting events" side...I am still working hard on getting things ready for the show. Only 1-1/2 more bindings, a sleeve, three labels and half a quilt to quilt....getting close!!
While I am on a roll I may just slip this little quilt under the needle.
Was planning to hand quilt it but there are so many seams...
